FM patients experience a wide range of emotions ranging from anxiety to depression. Anxiety is the more immediate reaction while depression is long term. Research is continuing on which precipitates the other between depression and FM. What is clearly known is that FM is worsened by depression. Fibromyalgia requires a multidisciplinary approach in its treatment involving medication, psychological and physical therapies. Visit a psychiatrist of a medical counsellor when you feel depressed and join a FM support group.

Tell us something we don't already know :p Sadly some people here are unable to seek professional help (to deal with depression) and by professional help I mean long-term therapy. All the doctors do now is give you meds for depression, but those meds come with awful side effects :( I was on a medication for depression a while ago, I ended up gaining a lot weight :( Therapy is much better, but not so affordable for everyone.
